High Holy Day Pledge 5780

All vibrant congregations must raise money through fundraising to support new initiatives and expansion as well as affirm the value that any person or household that wants to be part of a loving Jewish community is deserving of that Covenantal relationship.

The receipt of this letter before the High Holy Days is an early indicator that some aspects of community functioning are going to evolve and change. Our High Holy Day Appeal is not a request for additional charity, but it is an ‘ask’ for inspired investment in our communal future.

As a collaborative leadership team, the Board and our Professional Team is committed to making sure that your pledge on this High Holy Days is invested wisely and that your return on the investment will be evident throughout the year in the form of meaningful moments of connection, exceptional learning opportunities, and the further deepening of relationship between one another and your rabbi.

We hope you will consider investing at this pivotal time in our temple’s story. We begin a new chapter, building upon our successes, and, venturing out in new ways. It is an opportunity for each of us to be partners in supporting our community center.

To that end, we are asking that you answer this appeal in the affirmative as so many have done in the past. If you are able, we ask you to consider a monthly pledge offering for the next ten months.

Lastly, if there is an area of Temple life that inspires you or aligns with your values or could, we ask that you share that with us so we can better understand what you appreciate and value most or what you hope to be true about Temple Israel in the coming years. This will help inform and inspire the leadership team as it seeks to make wise and compassionate decisions on behalf of the community.
